My little guy, Jack, was born on New Years Eve!
If I wasn't in love with my business before (and I was), I most certainly am now. Those first couple months were CRAZY. What they call the "fourth trimester" is for real and I am beyond grateful I was able to take time to adjust to it all. It's true that you just never know how you'll feel until that little person is here.
I love that I got to snuggle my little guy during those first months. I love spending summer days at the awesome Minneapolis lakes and beaches.
I also LOVE more than ever putting on lipstick, dressing up and having some adult conversation at my Pure Romance parties a couple times each week!
My Pure Romance business is booming (had a $3,000 bachelorette party just a couple weeks ago!), our All Star team continues to grow both locally and across the country. Here are just a few highlights of the past several months!
January & February 2015
Umm...I'm not exactly sure what all happened these two months. I spent my hours doing marathon breastfeeding sessions coupled with marathon "Shark Tank" viewing then trying to sneak in sleep between. I can tell you that my Christmas decorations were up until mid February!
I also discovered that Hot Heart Massagers are AMAZING for relieving pain from plugged milk ducts - who knew?! Apparently a lot of people did, but this was news to me. I was happy to have a stash of half a dozen during this time.
That said, it is one of my most proud accomplishments with Pure Romance as this level requires both having a strong personal business AND strong leaders on your team.
Our corporate office spoiled me with a beautiful bottle of Dom Perignon (what?!) and am still waiting for the perfect occasion to pop the bottle!
April & May 2015
Leader of the Goal Diggers and All Star team leader Megan Danelson (pictured with CEO, Chris Cicchinelli) promoted to Sr. Director! She has been building it BIG in Fargo, ND and it won't be long before this savvy consultant has a National Team (side note: she did this in under two years, folks!)
Back in Cincinnati for National Training in April! This was my first time on the road since becoming a mom and ... I only cried a couple times. Mostly it was an amazing girl getaway and I slept for more than 4 hours for the first time!
Grateful to work for a company that takes such great care of mamas! We had a private pumping room at the Convention Center which was occupied at any given time by 3-8 mamas.
